Vegan Friendly Beauty
Vegan Beauty Is Where Its At
Vegan friendly beauty products are becoming such a demand these days. We understand – we think that testing cosmetic and beauty products on animals is totally unnecessary and really inhumane. We also believe there are better ingredients that products can be formulated with, rather than using animal derived ingredients. People are becoming more conscious about what goes into their products, and rightfully so. So many people suffer from skin ailments like eczema, psoriasis, and other sensitivities, and with cancer on the rise, people actually do need to be conscious of what they are putting on their skin.
We try our hardest to understand what clients care about. At the end of the day, even as professionals, we are still clients, and we care about the same things that you do. That’s why we are making changes in our kits. While we already use some products that are vegan friendly, we are making greater strides to convert our kits to being mostly vegan. In 2009, I learned about a vegan beauty and wellness brand called Arbonne. Through that brand, I found out about the nasty world of animal testing in the beauty industry. I had no clue about animal rendering plants (google it…you won’t like it), or about the fact that ingredients such as bat guano (aka, bat poop!) and other animal by-products go into mascara, lipstick and other beauty products as cheap fillers. To say the least, it was an eye opener.
Of course, over the years of being in business, our team has played around with different products. As professionals, its important to know what’s out on the market. As professionals, we also need to use products that actually perform well, and sometimes, finding vegan beauty products that perform can be a challenge. However, the desire to fill our kits with cleaner beauty products has always been at the forefront of my vision for M.A.W.Beauty, and is always a top priority to me.
Arbonne Is Our Brand Of Choice
I’ve always used bits and pieces of Arbonne products in my kit. I’ve always loved the quality of the product. The brand has great formulation standards and the products perform incredibly well. I appreciate the brand as a whole because it includes both cosmetics and skin care products – which is clearly something that we use on our clients. But in addition to the beauty products that we use on the outside of our body, Arbonne also offers a line of nutritional products such as protein powders, daily vitamins, digestion supplements, and other wellness products. They really focus on beauty from the inside out, and that’s super important – I always say that whatever you’re putting into your body will manifest itself on the outside. When considering products that I’d like to update our kits with, the Arbonne brand was truly a no brainer to me.
Here’s Why We Choose Arbonne:
- Vegan Friendly. Arbonne is a 38 year old company, and never in their nearly four decade history have they been a company that tests on animals. They also never formulate their products with animal derived ingredients. In fact, all of Arbonne’s products are certified vegan by the Vegan Society.
- Gluten Free. So many people have gluten intolerance nowadays, and we want to stay mindful of that. None of Arbonne’s skin care, cosmetics or nutrition products are formulated with gluten. The company is actually certified gluten free by the Gluten Free Certification Organization.
- Cruelty Free. Arbonne products are also certified cruelty free by Peta.
There are only a few of the reasons why we choose to incorporate Arbonne products into our kits. The reasons why we love this brand are truly endless. We really appreciate how conscious this company is about the ingredients that do – and, even more, what does NOT go into their products. At the end of the day, we really wanted to make sure that we had a trusted, vegan-friendly option that was high quality for our clients, and we are so glad that we found that in Arbonne.
